aroundjust hid themselves in the forest and ignored the visitor The late Fateh Singh Rathore was the warden of the park and used his understanding of tigers to ensure that some areas within remained closed and others open in a rotatory fashionwhich ensured peace for breeding tigers As the park did wellFateh took great pride in showing it to every visitor and tourist who cameincluding Rajiv Gandhi with his family and friendsand believe it or not Bill Clinton and his friends After allthey were all tourists searching for that magnificent tiger For yearslife went on and as tourist numbers grew so did tiger numbers In factall my colleagues started their lives as tourists to national parksirrespective of what they feel about it today We all know that forest lands are owned by the states revenue departments and are in the custody of the forest department for safekeeping Their governance is a state subject India has more than 14 types of climatic forestfrom Ranthambores dry deciduous belts to the mangrove delta of the Sundarbans near the Bay of Bengal The diversity is intense and no one national guideline can work for all either in terms of management or tourism Realising thiswildlife officers of the state always created their own site-specific guidelines This was just commonsense Many of our tiger reserves had mini cores and No-Go areas for visitorswhich changed yearly depending on an areas needs Till the 21st centuryDelhi did not interfere much A core is supposed to be a small part of the whole As far as the NTCA (National Tiger Conservation Authority) is concernedthe core or critical tiger habitat (CTH) is the wholeand by suggesting that tourism be phased out of this areathey in effect suggest that there will be no tourism at all Cores or CTHs came into being with the NTCA in 2006 through amendments in the Wildlife Protection Act Declaration of cores was done in a rush in order to insulate our tiger areas against the Forest Rights Act (FRA)which came into being before the end of 2007 So the Core/ CTH concept had to be completed before the birth of the FRA The NTCA was very proud that literally overnight 30000 to 35000 square kilometres got declared as CTHmaking it very difficult for anyone to do damage to it This CTH or core area included the best and the worst of forest lands A new core had been created overnight with little basis in science In RanthamboreKailadevi Sanctuary became a core critical habitat encompassing 595 sq km with one tiger25000 people40000 livestock and 44 villages This makes up 53 per cent of Ranthambores CTH I supported the process as it would save this tiger turf from the ugly horrors of mining and other forms of exploitation No one imagined that the NTCA would phase out visitationbe it for tigers or temples In factmost forest buffers became cores This is the only reason why today it is so difficult to find any forest land as a buffer as every inch has been put into the core Nowmostly private lands surround the core The core was not meant to be an area in which you phase out tourism It was meant to deal with the threat of the FRA and issues like miningtimber-fellingroad-building and so much more that can undermine the sanctity of the tigers home This issue must be clearly understood If such decisions of phasing out tourism from cores were ever taken in Africathe economies of many countries like KenyaBotswanaTanzaniaRwandaUgandaZambia would be severely affected All over the worldbillions of dollars are turned over by wildlife tourism andtodaylarge amounts from that go to local people In the Masai Maramore then $40 million go to the local Masai councils each year If for some administrative reason all this were stoppedlocal livelihoods would be wiped out and poaching gangs would have a free for all Alsothe biggest organisations that fund wildlife would close down asif people cannot see wild animalsthey will not donate to save them I have traversed every corner of Africa and seen some remarkable models of governance where the beneficiaries are locals and the wildlife around Large chunks of land have been regenerated for wildlife Gorillas in Rwanda were saved by sensible tourism Lionsleopards and cheetahs have benefited enormously as well If wildlife tourism today is in a messit is because of those who make the rules and implement the same all over India the forest department The visitor only follows what is prescribed by the government of the day We need to reinvent good wildlife tourism but we also need to reinvent the forest department We have to imbibe and learn from all parts of the globe the best practices for innovative tourism and for this we have to have a humility in our mission This is a moment that isfirst of alla wake-up call for our bureaucracyour conservationists and our wildlife scientists who will have to change course and be more open and flexible to new ideas and models of tourism Tourism does not kill tigers and did not kill the tigers of Sariska and Panna The non-functioning mechanisms of governance did We need to deal with the horrors of governance first Visitors to new frontiers made the history of the world and this is how many were inspired in their lifes missions That process cannot stop After 37 years of working with tigers and wildlife and serving at least 200 committees of both Central and state governmentsincluding five years on the Central Empowered Committee of the Supreme CourtI am convinced that sensible tourism in all our wildlife areas will be critical to saving them The beneficiaries of this must be the locals and the wildlife Since both wildlife and tourism are state subjectsthe states must make innovative guidelines for each site and with genuine partnerships with both locals and all those connected to the wildlife tourism industry New models that engage the locals with tourism will go a long way to generate income for them and mitigate conflict between the park and its inhabitants It is the states with the stakeholders that must decide the Go and No-Go areas for tourismand this issue has to be separated from what has become the CTH/ Core of tiger reserves today The CTHs/ Cores were never meant to be linked to tourism and visitation of any kind The forest department cannot save tigers on its own Only when civil society in villagetown and city partners them will tigers be safe The wildlife experience that inspires so many must go on Travel is the birthright of every homo sapien on the planetbe it for tigers or butterflies or temples I was a boy of 10 when I
